Regulatory compliance is often regarded as a necessary evil and it may be that you see data privacy laws in particular as impractical and constraining. Our approach to this area is completely different. We believe that there are positive tangible benefits to be gained from embracing good data protection management and being proactive can further enhance those benefits.
We are a truly specialist, market-leading team with international coverage and unique expertise gained over years of advising on business-critical global privacy and data protection projects.
Whether you are an internet start-up, a government department or a multinational player, we have the knowledge and experience to advise you on data protection compliance throughout the world.
We can offer you a range of services including global compliance, binding corporate rules, strategic advice in relation to your worldwide data transfers, and advice on the implications of providing law enforcement agencies with access to your data. We carry out data protection audits of your data processing operations, help you devise lawful and consistent e-mail marketing campaigns, and advise on the use of CCTV systems and collection of biometric information. Should things go wrong, we have experience of advising on protecting your business against regulatory enforcement action.
